Within KS1, children share stories that build reading and comprehension skills that will also help to develop their vocabulary. Each shared story book has an associated phonics sound that enables children to practise and embed the sounds that they have encountered in their phonics teaching. Within KS2, our children are able to access texts that challenge their reading skills. Our children enjoy a wide range of texts across a variety of genres that supports the essential reading skills they need to become competent, fluent readers who will become lifelong readers and writers.
As a whole school, we are enthusiastic and excited about children reading for pleasure. We select class readers to share with our children daily. Children look forward to this story telling time each day where they can hear a fluent reader and lose themselves in the pleasure of a good book.
